Scholarships are just one of the many forms of financial aid Olivet College has available for students, and the list of them is growing – with some interesting opportunities. That means good news for families, as Olivet now offers scholarships for twins and siblings. The qualifications are simple – starting in the fall of 2016, both twins or the sibling of a student already attending Olivet, must be newly enrolled. Best of all, there is no application fee, and receiving the Twin or Sibling Scholarship does not prevent students from taking advantage of any other scholarships the college offers!
Twins are each awarded $2,500 per year or $10,000 over four years, while the Sibling Scholarship awards families with multiple siblings $2,500 per year or $10,000 over four years. To date, six Sibling Scholarships and nine Twin Scholarships have already been awarded for the fall 2016 semester.
Meet the Walker Brothers
In the fall, senior Zachary Walker of Laingsburg will be joined by his brother, Canyon, at Olivet. Canyon is excited to be receiving the Sibling Scholarship, but also to be attending college with his brother, who can show him the ropes of being an OC student. “I think it will be a great experience to go to college with Zachary,” Canyon said. “He will help keep me on track and help me get around my first year.”
Zachary is also looking forward to the fall. He is a member of the Men’s Basketball Team, and Canyon will be trying out for the team this year too. “I think it will be cool having my brother on campus and getting to see him experience college for the first time,” Zachary said.
For Canyon, the Sibling Scholarship was just one part of the overall package that made Olivet College a great fit for him. Not only did it help make his education more affordable, it allowed him to take the leap into college alongside his brother.
